- Mariah, 47, offered a tour inside the massive multi-room closet
- There are several rows of clothes, most color-coordinated, as well as framed pictures of the star
- There is a separate room with several shelves for her heels and bags, one of which she says was a gift from Floyd Mayweather
- She also has a separate lingerie closet and says she would like to just wear lingerie all the time
Mariah Carey doesn’t just have a walk-in closet — she has a walk-around closet.
The 47-year-old pop diva invited Vogue into her 12,000-square-foot Tribeca, New York penthouse apartment for a series of new videos, and in one that the magazine uploaded on Tuesday, fans are treated to a close, detailed look at where she keeps her clothes and accessories.
The incredibly room — or rooms — feature rows upon rows of clothes, a separate room for shoes, a ‘lingerie closet’, and, of course, a bunch of framed photos of the star herself.

Mariah’s closet seems to be endlessly explorable, but the star offered a peak in a two-and-a-half minute video.
The camera pans across a top shelf stacked with Louis Vuitton luggage, a table of sparkly clutches, and shelves of pictures of Mariah — some with friends, some by herself.
‘I’m not as casual as most people,’ she says in a massive understatement as she walks through the room in a black dress and plenty of sparking diamond jewelry.
She holds up champagne, which has been poured into a monogrammed MC glass, and gestures to the room behind her. There, the viewer can see an entire closet rack devoted to pink dressed, which has been stacked with a set of pink luggage.
Behind that is a double rack of black tops and a black of white tops, as well as shelves of white storage bins — underneath which is a comfy-looking chair with a Louis Vuitton blanket draped across it.

When the camera turns, there’s even more to see: rows upon rows of clothes, organized perfectly, with a display dress hanging at each end.
Next up is the show room, where the shelves of color-coordinated heels appear to be endless.
‘I’m a shoe fanatic,’ she says needlessly, holding up a few of her favorite designer pairs.
Surprisingly, though, she says the ‘only shoes that matter’ are her slide-on Adidas flat sandals, of which she has several pairs. She explains that when she was pregnant, those were all she could wear.
The shoe closet also has bags up on the top shelf, and she points to two Hermes Birkins: a pink one bought for her by Floyd Mayweather, and a black one she gave herself.

Her sunglasses get a moment too as she explains, ‘I try to see what works on my face, and a lot of times, it’s what doesn’t squeeze my cheeks — ’cause I have chipmunk cheeks. Sometimes they’ll push into my face.’
Mariah, a huge Marilyn Monroe fan, also gives the viewers a peek at some of her collectibles, mentioning a piano belonging to the star and even taking out a compact that she once owned and took to the Golden Globes.
‘I guess I dress up a lot, but if I have my way, I’ll just wear lingerie and walk around the house,’ she goes on as she take the camera into the lingerie section of her closet, which is its own room.
‘I’m always looking for a nice little number,’ she says, name-checking Agent Provocateur and La Perla and showing off several lacy pieces hanging from silk hangers.
Luggage: She keeps luggage on the top shelf, including several Louis Vuitton pieces

Yesterday, her kids gave Vogue a similar tour of the closet, though their take was obviously a bit different — and left out the lingerie.
Twins Moroccan and Monroe, six, made their way through the massive digs showing it off. At one point, her son is asked if he knew the name of a designer of a dress, and he responded knowledgeably: ‘It’s called Balmain’.
The playful twins jostle against each other on a large chair located in the closet which is draped with a Louis Vuitton blanket.
‘I have nothing to say or do to intervene, okay? It just is what it is,’ the 47-year-old diva says of her energetic offspring.
Monroe is then quick to covet one of her mother’s pink sparkly performance gowns that is hanging separate from the rest of the garments in the room.

When asked by Vogue what her favorite item in the packed closet is, Mariah has a hard time picking just one.
A staffer then hands her a pair of jeans with the waistband cut off from her iconic 1999 music video for Heartbreaker. The singer then told the story behind her trendsetting alteration to the denim.
‘One day I was with my stylist, the late Tonjua Twist, and we were doing a shoot and I hated the way the jeans were so high waisted.
‘She cut a little bit of them and then we both ripped the top off of the jeans,’ she said of the look that became replicated in the early 2000’s. ‘I’m not taking total credit.’
Previously, she explained her penchant for designer footwear by describing her humble beginnings on her episode of MTV’s Cribs.
‘There was a time in my life when I only had one pair of shoes. I saved those shoes, but I can’t find them now. They were like, all destroyed and the snow used to come through them,’ she said with a hint of nostalgia.
‘The girl with one shoe now has many,’ she continued with a smirk.
